Sleep Sanctuary Secrets: How to Take your Bedding to the Next Level


If our Harvey Norman Interiors AW16 catalogue has you dreaming of a beautiful bedroom, you’re not alone. Our bedding pages are filled with elegant bed frames, perfect pillows and fantastic throws all thoughtfully arranged to form an irresistible sleep sanctuary. But guess what? It’s actually not that difficult to recreate in your own home. Here’s how:

Step 1: Top quality sheets

Treat your finger tips to 100% cotton sheets; there’s nothing better after a tiring day. For hotel style luxury, a minimum thread count of 300 is what you should be aiming for. You’ll thank us when you wake up feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Step 2: An expressive duvet cover

Next up is finding the perfect duvet cover to express your style. Whether it’s fancy florals, traditional check, subtle pastels or bright and bold blocks of colour, you’ll find something just right from our collection. Fold the top back on itself to create that ‘pure comfort’ vibe. Covers with contrasting patterns on the reverse always add interest.

Step 3:  Complement with cushions

Pick out colours from your duvet covers and draw attention to them with cushions in similar shades. Play with different textures, contrasting patterns, and mix and match shapes and sizes. Don’t be afraid to experiment; remember you can easily change them around if something doesn’t quite work.

Step 4: Finish with a throw

With chilly nights fast approaching you’ll need an added layer of warmth. A casually placed throw that reflects a colour, pattern or texture from your bedding ensemble ties it all together. Drape it across the lower half of your duvet and watch your sleep sanctuary emerge before your very eyes. Or, you know, just dive in and get cuddly.

Bonus Step!

Your boudoir may look the part after those 4 steps, but if you want top to toe comfort and true hotel luxury, you need to go one step further. That step is keeping everything tucked in tight with hospital corners.  It takes a little practice, but you’ll never have to worry about getting tangled up in sheets once you get it right. We challenge you to get through this tutorial with one attempt:


Too much effort? Just pick up a fitted sheet instead. Job done!
